Site of the Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops

The 12th Angkor Photo Festival & Workshops, to be held this year from 3rd – 10th December 2016 in Siem Reap, Cambodia. The Angkor Photo Workshops is an annual tuition-free professional workshop aimed at nurturing emerging talent from Asia. Each year, 30 participants are selected from across the region to join us in Siem Reap, Cambodia, for an intensive week-long workshop conducted by international professional photographers who volunteer their time and expertise to be a part of this initiative.

Participants will expected to complete one photo story each during the workshop, and will be guided by their tutors through all stages – from conceptualizing story ideas and refining your photographic approach, to improving your techniques and the final, important step of picture editing. We believe in diversity and originality, and we want you to develop your own unique photographic style and vision.

Featuring the work of over 130 photographers from 45 countries, our 12th Edition’s festival programme showcases some of the best photography projects from all over the world. Our exhibitions will run throughout the festival week, and the daily projection evenings will be held in a brand new open public space! The environmental-themed ‘GreenLight Exhibition Series’ continues for its third year, as well as the ‘Impact Project’, a projection showcase highlighting positive efforts by individuals and organisations. Look out for our 2016 Guest Curator Showcase, ‘We Alter Nature’, curated by Claudia Hinterseer.
